In this blog post, I am going to talk about the benefits of starting your own blog, then will introduce you to a great platform that you can use to do so! The Wix Blog helps you create a blog in just a matter of few minutes.

5 Benefits of Starting Your Own Blog

  1. Improve Your Writing Skills

The best benefit of blogging is that you can improve your writing skills. I have been blogging for more than 8 years now, and I still remember those days when I struggled to write articles of 300 words length. I struggled to find words and forming sentences. But, as I started my own blog, I tried to write better every single day. Gradually, I somehow improved my writing skills. At least, better than before. I know there is still a lot of room for improvement, but that will happen with time.

So, the best benefit is that you can improve your writing skills and that can help you everywhere in life whether you have to write a professional email or to write an apology letter or an application or even a letter to your girlfriend, you will be able to write all of them quite well.

  1. Boost Online Presence

When you start your blog and start working on it consistently, you gradually connect with many bloggers and marketers on social media for various business opportunities and networking. Also, when you blog well and share some great advice and information, you get many followers as well. A quality blog can help you significantly with building your online presence.

If you also blog for your business, then every boost in your online presence can help also help your business a lot. So, starting a blog helps you improve your overall presence online which can help you to market your business quite effectively.

  1. Increase Search Ranking

When you are running a business, you must have a website for it, which must be updated regularly; because business websites are generally static, that stops the growth of the website organically in search engines. Therefore, starting a blog integrated to the business website help increase search ranking of the website overall because when you start the blog, the website starts getting regularly updated that helps it grow well, and improve the SERP positions.

  1. Understand Your Customers

As you start your own blog integrated into your business website, you can directly talk to your customers through blog posts, and discuss things using the comment section. These all help you understand your customers more closely that help you design products or improve the existing products as per their requirement and something that fits well for your customers.

“A business gets success if you understand your customers.”

  1. Establish Yourself as an Expert in Your Niche

Starting a blog allows you to establish yourself as an expert in your field. All you need to do is to work consistently and share content that helps people solve their issues. When you are an expert, you can launch different products or start a business, and you will find your business starts out quite well due to your popularity as an expert.

There are a huge number of benefits of starting your own blog; I have just mentioned 5 out of them.

Why Should You Choose Wix Blog?

To be honest, I am not a big fan of different website builders since WordPress does it all for me, but the Wix blog is quite advanced and makes things so easy that even a newbie can create a blog and manage it without too much hassle. Those who are little unsure about the complexities of WordPress should choose Wix for creating their blog since management is quite easy. There are tutorials available in their knowledge base, which you can read when there is a need. Moreover, you can contact their customer support for getting help as well.

  • This was really a very interesting & informative read. Back linking is indeed great for SEO and what can be a better way than doing it at well-known blog sites! And not only for SEO purposes, it also helps to build a connection between people belonging to the same industry. Thanks for the article!

  • Search engines love fresh content. What better way to provide frequent content than with blog posts. By blogging consistently, you give Google and other search engines new content to index and you create opportunities to plug in those all-important keywords to increase your visibility on search engine results pages (SERPS).

  • I think blogging is dead. Not many people read blogs these days. Most people are migrating towards videos.

    I have seen people watch videos on youtube and on facebook for hours and when you ask them to read a few blog posts they find it boring.

  • I’m glad to see someone in 2018 saying to START blogging. It’s powerful as you’ve stated and a lot of people think you should just Instagram or YouTube instead, but… in my client niche (wedding photography), many of my potential clients are at work and should be working, when looking for a photographer. If they put on a video or music, it gets shut off quick and they click away… never to return. A blog with great photos and a story doesn’t induce that reaction!
